Your stats look fine, and I'm sure you'll receive more IIs. I would just prepare for the standard medical school interview questions at the very least. Don't over think it though!

Interview will depends on how you perform



Your stats are good for DO schools though so it’s up to how you interview

Chances of getting in are 100% on you.

Chances of getting IIs are very good if you apply broadly.

Skip the Touros, AZCOM and CCOM.

.I can't recommend Nova, Wm Carey, LUCOM, for different reasons. MSUCOM? Read up on Larry Nasser and you decide.

I applied DMU, CCOM, ARCOM, KCUCOM, OSUCOM, UPKYCOM, and WVSOM. I interviewed at DMU late last year and was waitlisted and my interview this year is ARCOM so far.

CCOM likes high MCAT scores, so that might be a wash.
